I've been hearing that it may be an all new type entirely. I've took a little research and saw that its Japanese name is Nymphia. Now I looked at Nymph's and discovered that they are types of fairies that is associated with nature. So I'm guessing one of the new types in X and Y might be a Fairy Type. Being associated with nature, I'm guessing it'll be resistant to the basic elements. (Fire, Water, and Grass)
Sylveon was one of those pokemon that I looked at and went, "Huh?" I didn't like it at first glance, but because I' an Eeveelution-crazed freak, I gave it some time. Glaceon gave me the same impression, yet it's now my top favorite pokemon of all time! And when I see SICK fan art like this, it makes me appriciate the design of the pokemon a lot more. Honestly, as of finding this particular art-piece, it feels like Sylveon is actually starting to CHALLANGE Glaceon for my top favorite!
So in short, AWESOME JOB MAKING THIS! Know that you've played a part is altering someone's list of favorite pokemon! XDDD
Thank you very much! I neither didn't like Sylveon (just because I didn't like its blue eyes), my top favourite eeveelution is Jolteon! Now, things have changed. By the way, I have started to ask request from my watchers in order to archive more and more watcher and as a challenge for my skill!
Right after I complete previous requests (you can see them in my journal), I will ask peoples for 3 new requests, you can place your request there (just one pokemon per journal)! OK, I'll make an EEVEE for u!
